It is fascinating and surprising to see how often a 13 year old campaign is downloaded that is much better gamed through when in embedded in its original environment providing ingame video. While the campaign is very well done the mod provides many additions that are totally unused by CARVER V.

There is a reason people are still downloading a 13 year old campaign. The work and love you put into it still shines through making a good game into a great game with countless more hours of fun to be had. Just wanna say thank you for all the sick days made a little less bad from Wolfman-x MC2 playthroughs :)

Microsoft used third party video player in MC2 (Bink Movie).
This is not freeware and thus important code was taken out of the released source code or deactivated. No mod based on source code release plays embedded videos.

Use the original MC2 CD to play through MC2 with video.

"No mod based on source code release plays embedded videos."
Might be right, but you are using the second release then (where the Bink code bits have been replaced by AVI).
I have the first release if you want it.

I just started on this and I have an issue.
When I move the mouse over the support icons (where you call in airstrike, salvage crew, etc.), there's a clicking sound continuously.
Could this be fixed?
Pretty annoying.

Also, having the Logistics screens in HD would be great.
Can you do anything for this?
I don't mind pixelation (can be fixed with AA or better textures), but I dislike resolution switches.
Thanks!

I like to look at the code you mentioned but never heard about two releases; remains to be confirmed by comparing it.

Click is intentional and will stay. It is only continous if you do nothing but stay on the button.

I will not invest into a revised logistic screen; it is more value and fun to create missions or implement features.

Thx for your feedback.

Repair truck issues:
- While having the repair truck selected, I can't issue a repair order directly on a damaged mech - I have to click the repair button first, and then the mech. This really is a huge step back, please reinstate the MC2 functionality.
- Repair truck won't go around and repair idle mechs automatically - this is something I would have expected from a modern mod. Please consider adding it.

Autocannon projectiles are very slow (using Rotary AC at the moment, really nice touch!); these AC projectiles move rocket-like as if they were not from a ballistic weapon at all.
I have not tried Gauss and railgun yet (which I'd be even faster), I hope those are okay at least.

I just finished the first Carver V mission.
Two issues:
- I am missing a bunch of pilot specialties. Sensor specialist and survivalist (dunno what was it called, the one that allows a pilot to withstand more damage).
- I seem to have lost the Bushwacker variants (the one I built) and the ones that were there before the mission. The mech is configured and named correctly, but when I select a Prime, I can't select any other configuration for it than the 'Prime' anymore.

Repair button is on purpose; more logic to me.

Automatic repair is possible by script but I do not like it.
Repairs are an activity that needs the right place and time. Automatic repairs is not always beneficial (too lazy to be realy good).

I can look one day at the projectile speeds.

Carver V was implemented with everything like it was in the original release. The mech definitions have changed over the years and revisions a bit; maybe this is why you see a difference. Will not change anything; differences are not really important. I did not change the specialties.

Ok, understood.

What about the Bushwacker variants being there before mission one but being gone after that very mission (while having a mech with a variant that's gone)?

One mission two, a cargo truck captured a turrent control, lol
I thought only mechs can capture buildings.
A cargo truck is not even a military unit...

In MC2X any player unit beside camera drones can capture enemy objects. The campaign is transferred into a new gaming environment thus some stuff feels different despite no changes to the campaign missions.

I wonder why you always look for deviations towards the original campaign in mods. The mod is not made for this old campaign. Play the original campaign from your CD with video and all the correct mechs and behaviour and do not use MC2X if you have/see no use and value in it.

Or you can use your (never seen before)first source code release and create your own mod.

So just to make sure, this is a Standalone download right? And if I have the original version of the game installed via my original CD, would that interfere with this version? I can't get the blasted original version to actually start up. It installed just fine, but apparently Windows 10 plays hell with older games haha.

Anyway, just wanted to make sure that wouldn't interfere with this d/L. :)

Never mix any files from MC2X with any other MC2 mod nor the original MC2. The source code is changed dramatically and limits are shifted thus it will crash or create error messages or not work correctly as a result of mixing it.
You can have it on same PC but not in same folders.

Since this is the only relatively active mod for this game on this site, I thought I'd ask here. This is apparently a common issue, but I haven't found a fix. I'm running Windows 7, and when I open the game, the process starts - I see it in the task manager - but it only stays open for a few moments before closing itself. I've tried everything I can think of, but to no avail. Does anyone have any idea what I can do to fix this? Or is this childhood gem lost to me forever?

I do apologise. It's MC2, and the issue is that the game fails to launch properly. Looking through forums and Microsoft help services, I can find a lot of complaints but not many solutions.

Is there a fix for weapons not firing until ALL can fire? I constantly have my guys with long range weapons holding fire with those until their shortest-range weapon is in range, and then they open fire with all of them. It's REALLY annoying when they are mechs like the Catapault, which is almost all LRM's but wont fire anything until it can also get it's small lasers to fire.

Is there a easy way to add the new weapons to the Carver 5 campaign? I know it ruins the balance... but sometimes I just want to set things to hard and out tech the AI for fun.

I have no clue as to how the modding works so I understand if it has to be done on a map to map basis and is to time consuming or difficult. If however there a text file I could alter, file I could replace, or something like that I would love to run through Carver again with advanced tech.

There are plenty of other campaigns using power weapons and I like to respect the great work of the CARVER V designers. I did not change anything unless absolutely neccessary to make it run on MC2X.

Wolfman....Thanks for your remake of the Carver V campaign. I have enjoyed replaying and look forward to downloading your other campaigns. One thing that I have noticed is that the pilot's piloting and sensor ratings increase during the campaign, but the gunnery rating does not. I reinstalled the download in a fresh folder (always keeping them separate...I already have R36 downloaded), but the gunnery rating stays the same. I have looked through your forums, but have not found anything on this. Thanks....Doc

These things have been changed over the years with my MC2X revisions. I did not turn the clock back to 'CARVER V release time' on those.

Thanks for your reply. It does make the game more challenging (as does the improved AI) and that has prompted me to experiment with using different tactics and mechs on the harder modes. I have also found that the pilots get injured more easily and the purchasing system is far better than the original mechanic. Looking forward to playing warlords soon. Thanks again...Doc

Hello. Encountered some weird error launching mc2xgame.exe.
It tells me that my video card has 0 bytes of VRAM. Clicking OK twice then launches the game, but it doesn't use any hardware acceleration (pixelated terrain, units and so on).
I'm running Windows 10 Pro on i7-6700K/32GB RAM/GTX 1080Ti.
As original MC2 displays same error, I suggest the trouble occurs because GPU has more than 4096 MB (4 GB) of VRAM, that's why game complains about 0 bytes of VRAM.
Anyways, I'm stuck and asking your advice. Thanks!

I do not use windows 10 thus I have no "error experience" with it. I run it on a win 7 ultimate or win 8.1 ultimate with a GTX 1080 as well in 1920x1200 resolution without issues. The gaming enfine can not handle large resolutions like 4k and gives error messages. Does that ibnfo help find the issue?

Reply Good karma+1 vote

Some meanwhile common resolutions like 4k or 1440p are outside the abilities of the MC2 gaming OS. No MC2 mod can reach it; the max known and tested resolution is 2048by1536.

Hey Wolfman, quick question.

So the Carver V campaign is the original 24-mission campaign, right? So, what's 'Warlords of the Rim Colonies 31-Mission Campaign' mentioned above? Is it not included in this download? Is that an add on download?

Thanks.

Every campaign is its own standalone packege like a totally new game (in some ways it is). You can install CVE or WRC or URE on the same PC at the same time but never into the same installation folder. WRC is a different game not an add on to CVE.

Cost of units and services have increased dramatically compared to original MC2 Thus you get more money to start with. No need to spent.

Great mod again!
Been using your mods for 10+ years from the mech lab days
magic's inventory add ons...

Here is my question:
What are the Aero, vehicle, and infantry
variants?

I am doing the old back door save cheat, it works
great for mechs, but without the proper CSV name
and variant, I cannot use them.

Thanks in advance.

I do not clearly understand what You ask for.All csv files are in the objects folder. You can see all names inside those files. Aircraft are mech objects, vehicles and infantry are vehicle objects.

Yes, you are correct within MC2X.
But inside of CVE, if you do the save
cheat- increasing inventory-then add mechs
like the dire wolf, it appears under your
inventory in campaign.
when I attempt with aero, vehicle, or infantry
the unit does not appear.
just trying to add battleforce type companies
into the Carver Campaign.
thanks for your previous response.

I don't know this trick; thus I can not judge what the issue is. Please sent me modified and original files or describe trick. I really have no idea what you do to increase the inventory. Do you add it to the savegame file or anything like it?

I guessed it would be tweaking the savegame file. How can it be fun to cheat yourself through a campaign? Anyhow: I can look at it to find out what you need to do to cheat with vehicles as well.

In MC2X only units can be deployed that are allowed for each mission. I blocked all unit types exept mechs in Carver V because in the oroiginal campaign nothing else was available for deployment. Thus cheat fails here. I am not going to release changes. Sorry. Carver V is a great campaign as is.
